Start with copper—end with copper! Students perform a series of chemical reactions to convert copper metal to its nitrate, hydroxide, oxide, chloride, phosphate, sulfate, and finally back to copper metal. Students practice many standard laboratory techniques such as filtering, decanting, precipitating, and neutralizing as they perform this amazing chemical feat. For each reaction in the cycle, students write a balanced chemical equation, note physical states of products, learn reaction types, and calculate percent yield. Teacher Notes and reproducible student handouts include pre-laboratory assignment, easy-to-follow lab instructions, data table, helpful tips, sample data, and answers to questions. All chemicals and specialized equipment are provided.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Perform this experiment in a fume hood or well-ventilated lab. Entire lab may take 3-5 laboratory periods.
